Team Icebike works hard to create new opportunities for cycling in Iceland.
Create new adventuresDesigning & Developing Trails
Big part of our job is to build and maintain trails.
Icebike Adventures is the only tour operator in Iceland that works with authorities to create trails and keep trails open for riders.
In 2010 we took pride in being a big part of designing and building Icelands first bike park: “Skálafell Bikepark”. Using Icelands longest skilift to transfer bikers up the mountain. The goal was to start a bikepark by building a trail for both beginners and more advanced riders.
Every summer Magne can be found trailbuilding. He continues to work on Skálafell bike park creating one trail each year. The park is small on international scale, but very popular amongst the small community of downhill riders in Iceland.
Other than Skálafell Magne has designed and created trails in Heiðmörk nature reserve and Þórsmörk “Thors Garden” nature reserve. Always with the permission of land owners and in co-operation with wardens and authorities.
Mountain biking in Iceland is a rather new sport. When founding Icebike Magne knew the name of just about every person in Iceland that owned a mountain bike. Now there are thousands. The community of cyclists in Iceland remains a tight one. Team Icebike firmly believes biking is a superb way to have fun. And to bike we need trails. Cycling culture in Iceland is growing every year and locals continue their work to get authorities onboard.
